With James Gunn and producer Peter Safran formally taking the reigns over at DC Studios, it’s turn out to be fairly clear that some fairly radical modifications are already within the works for the DCU. In a current Twitter announcement, Gunn particulars the corporate’s narrative plans for the long run, in addition to the destiny of their present properties.
One character specifically has followers a bit spooked, and it’s not simply because he wears a bat costume. Yes, we’re speaking about Batman — The Caped Crusader, Gotham’s Dark Knight, World’s Greatest Detective. What the heck goes to occur to The Bat?
Well, in response to James Gunn, quite a bit. In the video under, the Suicide Squad director lets slip his tenative plans for The Brave and the Bold. Surrounding Batman and his angsty son (and eventual Robin) Damien Wayne, this story of crime-fighting and household couldn’t sound cooler.
Wait, so there’s going to be two Bat…males? Not precisely. Let’s not freak out simply but, Robert Pattinson isn’t going to be out of a job. Like he says in the beginning of the video;
“If something is outside of that, like Matt Reeves Batman, Tod Phillip’s Joker, or Teen Titan Go! — that it is clearly labeled as DC Elseworlds — outside of the mainstream DCU continuity.”
So what’s going to occur to Robert Pattinson, and by extension, his flip as Batman? Probably nothing. The Batman wasn’t simply the most effective Batman movies ever made, it was the most effective movies of 2022 — interval. Fans couldn’t be extra excited for a sequel, and there’s no manner that James Gunn and co. might deny them that.
Frankly, Pattinson in all probability couldn’t give a crap. He’s not going wherever. Matt Reeves labored arduous to convey an extremely cohesive world to the silver display, and that absolutely fleshed out imaginative and prescient doesn’t actually should be linked to the bigger DCU.
With their newfound autonomy, the minds behind The Batman franchise may really have the ability to do extra than they ever might within the first place. Think about it for a second — their story doesn’t should play good with DC’s established continuity, and they’re allowed to reimagine folks, locations, and issues nonetheless they’d like. Jackpot.
The Reeves Batman is self-contained, and we hate to say it, however that’s a very good factor. Oh, and it means we’ll be getting two completely different model of Batman without delay. The vacation season might need ended, but it surely certain looks like Christmas.
